Announcing our first collaborative adventure! After our visit in the spring 0f 2014, Magellan International School’s science teacher Jennifer Barnett came up with the idea of translating our exhibit signs into Spanish. The 7th grade science students took on the project, and with some help from their Spanish teacher, Victor Solis, these awesome kids had the signs ready to go for this year’s visit with Magellan on April 17th.
What a fantastic addition to our program!
